Seed viability counts for Wyoming (Artemisia tridentata subsp. wyomingensis) and mountain (Artemisia tridentata subsp. vaseyana) big sagebrush for 2007-08 across the northern Great Basin

Dates

Start Date
2007
End Date
2008

Summary

Data are in a MS Excel spreadsheet that shows the number of viable seeds remaining (out of 100) in each replicate mesh bag of each treatment combination. Treatments were burial at 3 depths (surface, under litter, and below 3cm of soil) and harvest time (spring 2007, fall 2007, spring 2008, fall 2008). Treatments were replicated 8 times for a total of 96 mesh bags in each plot. Plots were located throughout the northern Great Basin in eastern Oregon, southern Idaho, western Utah and eastern Nevada in both Wyoming and mountain big sagebrush communities.
